This Nik – not that one, or the other one. Accept no substitutions, rain checks or insertions.
Nik is a queer nerd with a predilection for authenticity, intersectionality, and talking about things that make us uncomfortable. He believes that when one lives in/as a discursive identity – whether by choice or perception – the personal becomes political by simple virtue of the ways in which institutionalized norms are enacted upon non-normative people… which is a wordy way of saying that he thinks things like racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, size phobia, shame around sex, age and class are all pretty fucked up, and that the best way to foment change is to talk about, be aware of, and work in solidarity with others to break the cycle.
In his spare time, Nik enjoys following the muse to whatever creative endeavor presents itself, be it photography, skipping in public, or dressing up for no reason whatsoever. Currently, Nik spends most of his time split between school, work, spontaneous acts of creativity, and acting as the designated human servant to his cats, Captain Malcolm Pants and Sir August Gus Gus Guster Pants the third.
